Lake Charles Exports, LLC - FE Dkt. No. 11-59-LNG


The Office of Fossil Energy gives notice of receipt of an application filed May 6, 2011,
by Lake Charles Exports, LLC (LCE). LCE is seeking long-term authorization to export
up to approximately 2.0 billion cubic feet per day (15 million metric tons per annum)
of domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the LNG terminal in Lake
Charles, Louisiana, owned by Trunkline LNG Company, LLC (Trunkline LNG) to: (1) any
country with which the United States has, or in the future may enter into, a free trade
agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas and (2) any country
with which the United States does not have a FTA requiring national treatment for trade
in natural gas with which trade is not prohibited by Unites States law or policy. LCE requests
this authorization for a 25-year term commencing the earlier of the date of first export or
ten years from the date of issuance of the authorization requested.  LCE is a jointly-owned
subsidiary of BG Group plc and Southern Union Company.  The liquefaction and export
facilities would be the subject of an additional service agreement between BG LNG
Services (BGLS) and Trunkline LNG, who together are jointly developing plans to install
liquefaction facilities to enable exports of domestically produced LNG.  LCE will purchase
LNG from BGLS under a long-term LNG export contract.  F.R. Notice Issued June 7, 2011.
